Bio/CV

About

I am a Swiss – English photographer based in Luzern, Switzerland. My Grandfather first introduced me to black and white photography as a child and his passion for the medium and its storytelling possibilities clearly influences my conceptual work today.

I am interested to explore photography as a way to make the invisible, visible. In particular, I try to use photography to visually represent the hidden feelings and emotions associated with life events that affect women. I stage images using my own person as the posed subject and employ double exposure techniques or the addition of colour as ways of layering, challenging or adding meaning. By inviting the viewer to explore these often unspoken issues, I aim to foster a better awareness and open discussion.

I also enjoy the challenge of discovering the unseen in nature.  By taking a different perspective, using minimalistic black and white or using an unexpected processing treatment, I believe it’s possible to make the mundane and ordinary, extraordinary.   

Although initially self-taught, I am currently studying for an Honours Degree in Photography with the Open College of the Arts in the UK. My work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions.
